This allows send_media_group to work properly to upload multiple files.
Also makes the thumb argument of send_* methods work as expected.

Bot API 4.0 (#1168)
Telegram Passport (#1174):

- Add full support for telegram passport.
    - New types: PassportData, PassportFile, EncryptedPassportElement, EncryptedCredentials, PassportElementError, PassportElementErrorDataField, PassportElementErrorFrontSide, PassportElementErrorReverseSide, PassportElementErrorSelfie, PassportElementErrorFile and PassportElementErrorFiles.
    - New bot method: set_passport_data_errors
    - New filter: Filters.passport_data
    - Field passport_data field on Message
    - PassportData is automagically decrypted when you specify your private key when creating Updater or Bot.
    - PassportFiles is also automagically decrypted as you download/retrieve them.
- See new example for details on how to use, or go to our telegram passport wiki page for more info
- NOTE: Passport decryption requires new dependency `cryptography`.

Inputfile rework (#1184):

- Change how Inputfile is handled internally
- This allows support for specifying the thumbnails of photos and videos using the thumb= argument in the different send_ methods.
- Also allows Bot.send_media_group to actually finally send more than one media.
- Add thumb to Audio, Video and Videonote
- Add Bot.edit_message_media together with InputMediaAnimation, InputMediaAudio, and inputMediaDocument.

Other Bot API 4.0 changes:

- Add forusquare_type to Venue, InlineQueryResultVenue, InputVenueMessageContent, and Bot.send_venue. (#1170)
- Add vCard support by adding vcard field to Contact, InlineQueryResultContact, InputContactMessageContent, and Bot.send_contact. (#1166)
- Support new message entities: CASHTAG and PHONE_NUMBER. (#1179)
    - Cashtag seems to be things like $USD and $GBP, but it seems telegram doesn't currently send them to bots.
    - Phone number also seems to have limited support for now
- Add Bot.send_animation, add width, height, and duration to Animation, and add Filters.animation. (#1172)
